The Alabama House of Representatives gave final passage today to a bill that would end the issuance of marriage licenses by probate judges and instead have them record documents that would serve as the official records of marriage.
The bill goes to Gov. Kay Ivey, who could sign it into law.
The article goes on to state the following:
The laws came in response to the legalization of same-sex marriage by the U.S. Supreme Court in 2015. In Alabama, some probate judges stopped issuing marriage licenses four years ago because they did not want to sign same-sex marriage licenses.
In response to officials who don’t like issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples, Alabama passes a law that ends marriage licenses altogether (couples instead will submit a sworn form that officials will record as evidence of the marriage). https://t.co/6dp0tuF7l1
